Disability inclusion in the NSW public sector 


Practical strategies and tools to ensure people bring their complete selves to work. 

ABOUT THIS EVENT 

The Premier has committed to 5.6 per cent of government sector roles being held by people with a disability by 2025.  It is also agreed that the public sector needs to take a leadership role in building inclusive workplaces as we can’t appreciate citizens’ concerns unless we understand and reflect them.  

But despite overt attempts to recruit people with disability, feedback suggests that the public sector still has ways to go before it is a truly inclusive culture. 

This masterclass provides an opportunity to learn the current state of play and challenges from the 2019 Australian Public Service Diversity and Gender Equality Individual Award winner, Scott Grimley. 

Scott is a passionate advocate for diversity. Through his lived experience with visual impairment, Scott has demonstrated resilience and leadership in disability advocacy and support for the National Museum of Australia, the APS and the broader ACT community. 

By sharing his experiences and knowledge, Scott has made significant progress increasing staff awareness, improving access, reducing stigma and enhancing an inclusive workplace environment at the Museum for both staff and visitors. 

This is an exclusive opportunity to learn directly from Scott about how to apply his insights and experiences to the NSW public sector environment. 

 WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

This masterclass has been specifically designed to give you the practical strategies and tools to develop a more inclusive culture in your organisation.

It is an opportunity to explore the issues your workplaces and workers face. It will also give you hands on experience to develop tips and tools to find solutions and ways forward.

All IPAA events include purposeful networking which allows you to: 
  • Build relationships with the speaker/s and fellow guests
  • Develop your capabilities
  • Establish connections across the NSW public sector.

Gail Le Bransky is a passionate advocate and national thought leader on inclusive customer service, with a strong focus on culture change and digital transformation. She is current seconded to the NSW Public Service Commission (PSC) where she is leading a range of initiatives to deliver the Premier’s Priority to increase proportion of government sector roles held by people with disability to 5.6% by 2025.

Prior to joining the PSC, Gail was the Director, Social Policy at Transport for NSW where she championed a customer focused approach to delivering accessible transport services across NSW. In this role she achieved cultural change and innovation to provide a universally accessible transport system, including Future Transport 2056 strategies to address transport disadvantage and the development of technology solutions for customers with disability. Her work resulted in the highest standards of accessibility for the Sydney Metro, Sydney and Newcastle Light Rails and new inter-city and regional rail fleets and Harbour City Ferries. 

She improved product and engagement models for customers with a disability and older people in the Opal ticketing system roll-out to the Greater Sydney, Wollongong, Newcastle and Blue Mountains regions and revised several schemes designed to alleviate cost of living pressures and in doing so significantly improved engagement with key customer stakeholders.

Gail has contributed internationally as a member of the US Transportation Research Board’s International Committee on Accessible Transportation and Mobility and worked with the OECD as Australia’s representative on an expert group on cost benefits of accessible transportation.
